      i really like that this show touched on and made fun of subjects that really did affect kids. No other kids show was talking about divorce but millions of american kids were dealing with divorce. Funny how you get a completely different perspective on kids shows when your an adult.

      This show was funny and edgy. Go Canada. I agree with whomever commented that kids could handle much more in the 80s and weren’t so coddled. And witth womever commented that these look like real kids…today everything is bland and conformed. and disney kids are polished to look like little adults. Say what you will about 80s fashion…at least it was interesting and unique. and these kids have some keat on their bones…not starved for skinny jeans.

      So, did I, I loved everything about Christine, and this show, everyday I watched it, even though my mom didn’t want me too, she said to me and I quote “Adam, I don’t want you watching that shit”, I didn’t listen to her LMAO.

      Ross, Lance, Teacher, etc. truly a gifted comedy writer/actor.
